    Grace Mondo Elite

    Is this radio virtually an update on the Squeezebox? And is the Sirius Sound Station (which looks just like it) the same unit?

    I remember seeing this unit and dismissing it because it could not be joined to a Squeezebox network. Now, with "Chromecast built-inÖ", it should be joinable using LMS "Chromecast bridge" plugin.

    It is a remarkably similar industrial design.

    Mondo Elite

    Thanks...but is the Sirius Sound Station just another name for the Mondo Elite...and what is the LMS Chromecast Bridge plugin? Where do I get that?

    The Sirius model is for SiriusXM only - perhaps why the price is lower (maybe SiriusXM subsidise it).

    You won't be able to use the Chromecast Bridge plugin unless you use LMS (Logitech Media Server)

    They look identical.

    Yet it costs less (assuming it is still available) ... which is why I think it might be subsidised.

    The one I found did not have the same design as the Mondo Elite but perhaps there is a newer model that I missed.

    Indeed they do, and if you only want if so you can look at it, either one should be satisfactory. However, it seems that their internals are quite different. Do you have a Sirius subscription? Based on Amazon reviews, it appears that the SiriusXM Wi-Fi Sound Station ONLY works with Sirius. Apparently, it does not have the same features as the Mondo Elite, including the Chromecast capability, so it would not be a good substitute for that device, despite its looks.
